The Hill Folk playing some tunes at Hippie Hill in Tennessee.
Arlo Guthrie once stated, “Folk music is music that everyday people can play, and it inspired a lot of people to make their own music. That trailed into making your own pop music, and that's why garage bands started springing up everywhere.”
Guthrie was an original hippy, a song writer and was known for singing songs against social injustice. However, his only hit was the cover of Steve Goodman’s City of New Orleans.
His best known work was an 18-minute blues / satirical song called Alice’s Restaurant Massacree.
